Medicine Hat JazzFest

The Medicine Hat JazzFest has grown from a grassroots community-based event to a widely recognized world-class festival that has taken its place alongside the other great jazz festivals in Canada. It features an eclectic mix of venues, running the gamut from their signature concert at the Downtown Bus Terminal Parkade to an airport hangar to the world-class Esplanade Arts and Heritage Centre to the intimate and quaint atmosphere of late night clubs. JazzFest features both free and ticketed events as well as a number of educational opportunities including workshops, jams, and a concert for elementary school children. Winner of the 2010 and 2015 Medicine Hat Chamber of Commerce Tourism Award of Distinction, the 2016 Alberta Chamber of Commerce Business Award in Arts and Culture, the Medicine Hat JazzFest has found a way to bring together great jazz and a community festival that’s all about fun and celebration, and to do it in the beautiful setting of this small and friendly Alberta city.
